This review is from: Nier (PS3) (Video Game)
I was given this game as a gift - and at first I was dubious as to whether I would like it.
And, oh god, I LOVE this game.
Yes, it has some flaws, the graphics aren't top bar, but the story is great, the characters are great, and the gameplay is great fun.
If anyone played the PS2 games Drakengard and its sequel, well, I was reminded of those games for some reason...
Which turned out to be no coincidence, as Nier is intended to take place far in the future after the events of the second Drakengard. Which, if you've played those older games, makes the story of Nier make a bit more albeit, eerie, sense.
It was addictive getting all the PS3 trophies, which normally I'm not too obsessed about. And the replay value is great, as you unlock more of the endings and story, the more times you replay.
Finally, the soundtrack was beautiful. Its been a long time since I've been so enamoured with a game's music as I have with Nier.
